You’ll get by with a little help from your friends. More specifically, your pals in high places, or a mentor figure who can lend a hand in revamping your ground-floor plan into something truly groundbreaking. Drop the solo act, Ram, and collaborate. Even fellow Aries Lady Gaga works with a creative team—a.ka. The Haus of Gaga—which has helped transform her talent into superstardom.
How many times do you need to bang your head against the same brick wall, Taurus? Today’s planets urge you to take a different tact. Give an unconventional solution a go, even if it breaks a few of the traditional rules you’ve been trained to follow. You could be surprised to find that the strategy to which you’ve been most opposed is the one that swings open the door to possibilities.
A man of influence enters your sphere today, Gemini, opening a window of opportunity. Don’t even think of playing the wallflower while in his presence.

A candid conversation could reveal an enticing new layer to someone in your inner circle. It’s all too easy to become complacent with those closest to you, but stay on your toes, Cancer.

It’s Love Your Body Day, Leo. You don’t need to go vegan or start training for an Ironman triathlon to treat yourself with care. Simply be mindful of the small choices you make throughout the day. Rather than topping your tank with a second espresso and a chocolate croissant, opt for an energizing oolong green tea and Greek yogurt with fruit. Eschew the channel-surfing this evening for a mat Pilates class, or pop in a fitness DVD and turn your living room into an energetic exercise studio.
Rather than waiting for you-know-who to call or decide he or she is ready to commit, take command of your love life. There are plenty of fish in the sea, Virgo. Besides, as Murphy’s Law would have it, the one you’re pining for seems to wake up the minute you have someone else on your line. Dress up and go meet friends at a singles-friendly hot spot. Even if all you do is flirt with a few people, at least you’ll remember your powers of attraction. Already spoken for? Make spontaneous plans for a midweek date night, and don’t forget the candlelight!
Staying active amps up your productivity, a good reason to hit that noontime cardio class or take hourly stretch breaks Don’t stay cooped up all day. Take a brisk walk around the block on your break. The frosty air will hit the Refresh button on your energy levels.

You might just solve that work crisis between bites of kale salad.
No need to shift into crisis mode just yet, Scorpio, but you do need to propel people into action today.

No (wo)man is an island, and that rings especially true for you today. The moon in Capricorn could bring out your inflexible side, which won’t do much for advancing your goals. A cluster of planets in your collaborative third house urges you to seek out constructive criticism before you put the final stamp of approval on your grand plans. A colleague, sibling, close friend or even neighbor could shine a light on a particular element of your brainchild that could motivate you to transform it from “OK” to “outstanding”!
You’re always full of innovative ideas, Aquarius, but is your brain on overload? If you’re not sure which direction to move in, do some research. Spend time investigating the options online, at your local library or via reliable sources. You might want to even hire a life coach to help you narrow your focus.
